Cadeler A/S to Install Turbines for ScottishPower Renewables

Cadeler has secured a contract with ScottishPower Renewables to transport and install 95 wind turbine generators at the East Anglia THREE windfarm located in the southern part of the North Sea. The project is expected to commence in early 2026 and be completed by the end of the same year. The windfarm will have a total expected capacity of 1.4 GW, with the contract being valued just above 100 million Euro. The agreement was initially announced as a reservation agreement on July 13, 2022, which has now been converted into a firm contract. Cadeler will be using one of its O-class vessels, equipped with a new crane, and one of its two newbuild X-class vessels, currently under construction, for this project.

Mikkel Gleerup, CEO at Cadeler commented: “We are happy to sign this important contract and begin our new partnership with ScottishPower Renewables. The East Anglia Three is a highly ambitious project that when finished will power 1.3 million homes with renewable energy and have a definite impact on our urgent transition to green energy sources. For this project Cadeler will use both our O-class and X-class vessel, and it will be great to see the true potential of our newbuild X-class vessels come to good use.”

Ross Ovens, Managing Director for the East Anglia Hub also commented: “We’re pleased to have signed this contract with Cadeler as part of our ongoing efforts to secure all major supply chain contracts for our East Anglia THREE offshore windfarm. East Anglia THREE will play a critical role in bringing more homegrown green electricity on to the grid, with a capacity of 1,400MW of green electricity it will help achieve the clean energy future we all want – and need. This contract highlights the opportunities that offshore wind offers and how it can support innovation and growth across the supply chain and economy as showcased by Cadeler.”

The East Anglia Hub is a new windfarm complex with a total capacity of 3GW, located in the southern North Sea off the east coast of the UK. It consists of three phases: East Anglia ONE North, East Anglia TWO, and East Anglia THREE. In order to meet the demands of this project, assets with significant capacity are required. The X-class vessel boasts a deck space of 5,600m2, a payload of over 17,600 tons, and a main crane capacity of above 2,000 tons at 53 meters, making it a potentially desirable option for the industry. It has the ability to transport and install large capacities, such as five sets of 20+ MW turbines or seven complete 15MW turbine sets per load. This reduces the number of trips needed for individual projects, leading to faster installation times and reduced carbon footprint.
